PSC Golf Bunker Boys at The Ranch
Monday, Feb. 22, Crystal Bay – Medal
A quick trip down Route 7 on this clear blue skied day to a perennial favorite and despite it being a medal round we had a good turnout of 27 players. The course was, as always, in top notch condition with fast greens.
Medal brings out the best in a golfer so not surprisingly Colin Craig emerged as winner of the A flight with a net 70, and this was equaled by Peter Habgood in the B flight and these were the only two players to beat their handicaps.
1st Colin Craig net 70
2nd Bob Catlow net 74
3rd Eddie Graham net 74
1st Peter Habgood net 70
2nd Neil Carter net 74
3rd Arthur Rowley net 75
Near Pins: Ronnie Melvin, Colin Greg, Eddie Graham, Ronnie Melvin
Wednesday, Feb. 24, Treasure Hill (yellow tees) – Stableford
They are still working on the 331 so it was a slowish trip up to Treasure Hill where despite 3 groups who booked to play, there we were no hold-ups and there were more than enough caddies and good working golf buggies for everyone. Top marks to the admin at the course.
Once again there were only two players who equaled or beat their handicaps so the course played harder than it looked.
Tony Scrambler was heard to enquire as to where Pattaya Mail had found the published picture of him as it made him look so young that nobody recognised that it was him.
1st Geoff Parker (15) 36pts
2nd Tony Scrambler (13) 34pts
3rd Mark Stanley (8) 33pts
1st Steve Durey (19) 37pts
2nd Les Burns (33) 33pts
3rd Phil Moore (18) 32pts
Near Pins: Phil Moore, Tony Scrambler, Keiichi Kasami, Ken Davidson.
Friday, Feb. 26, Mt. Shadow (blue tees) – Stableford
It was a great day for golf at the ever-popular Mountain Shadow Golf Club: perfect weather, the course in great shape, and 35 of our finest roaring to get on with it. As per our last few visits, there was a bit of a delay at the starters’ gate, but not a major problem.
Our B-flight guys were on top of their game with all three pay positions playing to or bettering their handicaps, and a good day overall as the average stableford score was a very respectful 33.
Your scribe had that frisson moment watching Arthur Rowley’s ball land and roll toward the cup on the par-3 127-yard 5th hole. It was looking like a for sure hole-in-one but came to rest some twenty inches past the cup. Arthur was all smiles walking on the green to mark his ball; then proceeded to yip the putt and take a par. Ouch!
1st Mark Stanley (8) 37pts
2nd Tony Scambler (13) 36pts
3rd Colin Greig (10) 31pts
1st Tore Eliasson (22) 38pts
2nd Ken Davidson (24) 36pts
3rd Tim Winder (25) 36pts
Near Pins: Keiichi Kasami, Neil Jones, David Nichools, Arthur Rowley.
